Protecting insurance consumers all year round

This week is National Consumer Protection Week and the OIC is one of the many government agencies that helps protect consumers from financial harm.

So what does that mean for Washington consumers?

Consumer protection is part of the OIC’s mission, which is reflected in the way we do business. Our consumer advocates can help:
In 2014, our consumer advocates fielded 6,135 consumer complaints and helped recover more than $9.5 million in insurance billings, refunds and other claims-related issues for Washington citizens. Read more about the ways we helped consumers in 2014.

We share information of interest to insurance consumers on this blog and through our social media channels. Many of our blog posts are generated by questions our consumer advocates receive from Washington citizens.
